Jesus is Our Fulfillment
Day 1: Christ is our redemption forever.
With His own blood—not the blood of goats and calves—he entered the Most Holy Place once for all time and secured our redemption forever. Hebrews 9:12
It no longer requires religious sacrifices for us to live fully redeemed. Jesus became the ultimate sacrifice so we could be secured forever to spend eternity with God. God loved us so much that He provided Jesus as the spotless Lamb to take away the sins of the world.
Prayer: Thank you, God, for securing my eternity with You through your Son. Thank you, Jesus for becoming sin for me so that I would not perish but have everlasting life. Amen.
Day 2: Christ finished our healing.
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5
By His stripes we are healed. The word “are” is a plural and second person present tense verb. This is significant to know because it indicates that Jesus was the first person in the interaction of our healing when He hung on the cross after enduring a brutal beating. We are the recipients of His actions. When we believe that each bruise He received, that each slashing of flesh, and His ultimate death completed our healing, we can walk in confidence that we are healed and that it is finished!
Action: If you have sickness in your body today and you have been waiting for healing, look up each of the following verses: Proverbs 4:20-23, Galatians 3:13, 1 Peter 2:24, Isaiah 53:4-5
Day 3: Christ died once and for all for our victory.
…knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. Romans 6:9
Jesus does not have to die over and over again in order to give us victory. We have complete freedom from all things that lead to destruction in our lives. It is a finished work.
Prayer/Action: Dear Lord, thank you for defeating sin and death when you were on the cross! Thank you for providing life forevermore! In Jesus Name, Amen! Take time to worship to this song today: The Cross Has The Final Word
Day 4: On our behalf, Christ regained favor with God for our sins - past, present, and future.
…being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed… Romans 3:24-25
We might hear a word and wonder, “what in the world does that mean?” The word “propitiation” found in this verse means, “to regain favor by doing something…” Jesus did something that brought humanity back into favor with God because He loved them. He hung on a cross and died so we could be forgiven of all of our sins. He became the sacrifice so we wouldn’t have to do it for ourselves. Jesus took on sin forevermore and called us righteous!
Prayer/Action: Say this declaration over yourself today: I am the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus. No weapon formed against me will prosper, and I will see the glory of God in the land of the living. I am justified freely by His grace and all of my past, present, and future sins are forgiven! Amen!
Day 5: Everything I need is provided for me through Christ Jesus.
…as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue… 2 Peter 1:3
The moment I start to feel overwhelmed by the circumstances of life, I make the declaration that God has already provided everything I need to succeed in that situation. Whether it’s in our finances, in our health, or in our relationships, we can know that God’s provision is available for us to receive.
Prayer: Jesus, you have provided everything I need that pertains to life and godliness. I receive that blessing and know that I will succeed. Thank you for blessing me. In Your Mighty Name, Amen!
Day 6: Jesus satisfied the Father by His sacrifice.
He shall see the labor of His soul and be satisfied. By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many, For He shall bear their iniquities. Isaiah 53:11
Through Christ Jesus we are completely and forever forgiven. There is nothing else that ever has to be done in order for our iniquities to be as far as the east is from the west. The only action that must take place to make the transaction complete between you and God is for you to believe what He did and receive the truth for your own life.
Prayer: Dear Jesus, thank you for making the transaction complete. Thank you for providing redemption for me through your death and resurrection. In your name, Amen.
Day 7: Jesus completed the work He was sent to do.
After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!” Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth. So, when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit. John 19:28-30
When Jesus spoke His last words, “It is finished,” He didn’t mean it was complete for the time being or in that moment, He meant it was complete for eternity, paid in full! He intended to complete the work He was given to do - to seek and to save those who needed reconciliation. No one but Jesus in the flesh could accomplish such a task.
Action: Spend time today studying what Jesus did to reconcile you to the Father by reading these scriptures: John 17:4, Luke 19:10, Romans 3:23-25, and 2 Corinthians 5:18-19. Follow that time by worshipping to this song: It Is Finished
